The roots of MAPPE NOOTICHE lay in an outfit named M.C. NOON, formed by Andrea Fiorin (bass, synthesizer, loop machine, voices), Umberto Schirosi (guitars, voices) and Luca Galimberti (percussion, loop machine) in 2000. They played improvised experimental sounds under the influence of Space Rock, Krautrock, and Rock Progressivo Italiano.

The band has so far released one album and I got in touch with them for the story. Andrea answered my questions.

When, where and by whom was your band born ?  

Mappe Nootiche was born in 2002.


Did any of you, past and present members, play in any other bands before joining up in your band ?

Andrea Fiorin, Luca Galimberti and Umberto Schirosi played in a Band named "M.C. Noon"

Why did you choose that name ?

Mappe Nootiche is a intuition of Stefano Benni, an Italian writer.
in a book of mr Benni, "Elianto" , Mappe Nootiche are the maps of imagination: only a little child named Elianto can watch it!

This is a very cool band I first heard years ago on Myspace, before Myspace sucked.  Those who enjoy trippy soundscapes should check them out.
